The Department of Homeland Security executed a search warrant last week at the Ohio-based U.S. subsidiary of Qingdao Sunsong, a Chinese automobile parts manufacturer that a congressional committee has accused of trade fraud.

The big picture: There is growing concern among lawmakers that Chinese companies are evading U.S. tariffs.

What’s happening: DHS agents searched the premises of Harco Manufacturing Group in Moraine, Ohio on Thursday, Dayton Daily News and other local news reported.

  • Sunsong Holdings acquired Harco Manufacturing Group in 2015.
  • The search was held at 3535 Kettering Boulevard, the address of Harco’s plant, and the same address that Sunsong North America lists on its website.

What they’re saying: The search was “part of an ongoing federal investigation,” a DHS spokesperson told Dayton Daily News.
